The Brutalist Lincoln House (Lincoln, MA) designed Mary Otis Stevens and Thomas McNulty. An incredible example of “Beton Brut” (raw or unfinished concrete) this home was designed to have no enclosed rooms of any kind delineating space was done with furniture. One of the few female architects in the 60s and 70s, Stevens was part of a vibrant scene around MIT, which included visiting designers such as Alvar Aalto, Eero Saarinen and Buckminster Fuller (who happened to be a family friend.) She spent some time working with the The Architects Collaborative under Walter Gropius, and went on to join Thomas McNulty and other MIT grads in an experimental architecture practice. The Lincoln house was completed in 1965 and was torn down in 1999.

I had the fortuitous opportunity to drop in on a painter that I admire, whose studio is 15 min from where we’re staying in Northwest Connecticut.
Ted Gahl is a gem of a dude and really great painter. Ted has a killer, light filled studio with stacks of paintings and the perfect balance of Nag Champa + Grateful Dead.

The next casting of this sculptural object is being ordered for production at the foundry this week.
This is a solid bronze cast of a skull that I carved out of a bar of Dove soap when I was 10.

It is an edition of 7, with an AP. 3” x 2.5” X 1.5” and it is very heavy,
maybe 7lbs of solid bronze. There are 6 left in the series.
Can be made with a patina and also a shiny version. It also fits extremely well in ones right hand, as it was carved by a lefty. It looks very handsome on a coffee table or shelf. Please dm for more info. #joshelrod

Interior of hugely influential, self described “transmedia artist” April Grieman’s home (no date.)
Grieman was one of the first adopters of computer design. “During the 1970s, she rejected the belief among many contemporary designers that computers and digitalization would compromise the International Typographic Style; instead, she xploited pixelation and other digitization "errors" as integral parts of digital art.”
Her work was ground breaking and helped usher in postmodernism. In addition to the two interiors shown, there is a selection of her output from the late seventies into the eighties, including the poster for the 1984 Olympics, held in Los Angeles.
She currently owns and operates a design consultancy in LA called “Made In Space”

I tried making this post 6 different times and was thwarted for some inextricable reason. I guess this a “year in review” post but how would that even be possible? In a nutshell we had the hardest year since we started Wilder and it was really, really stressful. Like just beyond. The distress of Covid has been financially vexing, emotionally draining, physically trying and spiritually exhausting.
Somehow, in the middle of it all, life’s small precious moments carried us through. Laughing at something ridiculous (like finding yourself in a meme), going to the vet to get medicine for a dog and coming home with a kitten, seeing old friends in Coney Island, ice cream after being at the beach, being able to hang with family with no masks, my moms desserts, watching every episode of Rupaul’s Drag Race…
Thinking of last year is kind like that feeling one has after waking up from a really intense dream and all the complex emotions are there but the story is out of reach, just the fractured flashes of images remain.
We are hungry to create, to connect and to grow. Wilder has always been a platform for us to experiment, make mistakes, discover new things, connect with people and just generally be stoked to show up for it.
We want to thank everyone who has helped us get here and are grateful we’ve been able to survive a global pandemic with our minds intact.
We look forward to seeing you in the flesh in 2022, happy new year! 🎆

A round up of sorts, books and zines that are objects of desire. I really wanted to get this together with plenty of time for people to potentially shop before the holiday, however here we are. I could do many of these posts and maybe I will. Just use your “funny money” that your aunt gave you for the holidays and spend it here.
All of these artists, imprints, publishers and shops are important to support, as books and zines are a huge part of the cultural dialog. But you know that already, I’ll shut up.

In order:

1. Christian Michael Filardo
“Gradient of Happiness”
@christianmichaelfilardo

2. Richard Kern
“Baron”
@richardkernstudio

3. Chris Cascio
“Psychic Distortions”

4. Sly Morikawa

5. “How to Cook a Wolf”

6. Katz + Dogg

When fashion designer Roksanda Ilinčić was commissioned to design the interior for a flat in Kings across, she readily accepted. Having never done an interior before I would say she totally crushed it. A beautiful color palette, use of iconic design pieces as well as a slew of female artists brings vibrant life to a reimagined gas storage tower (!!!) - swipe through >>> as originally seen in @mad_about_the_house 💗
